That car is still probably going to be slow after your mods are done unless you do something big to it, because its a heavy 4 door and only has a 4cyl. I would suggest starting with a cold air intake, header, exhaust system, and plugs and plug wires.

Yeah, VTEC would do it some good. B18 block.

Also, make sure it comes out of a Honda Prelude, not an Integra. The Preludes always had bigger engines.

whoa dudes.. if yall are even thinkin' about a turbo conversion then there's tons of work to be done, starting off with an ecu, new headers/manifolds, new combustion chamber lay-out, blue printing the lower block, new seals, new exhaust for a lower compression, new internals for a lower compression, you'll need to re-build your engine bay to be able to hold all the new parts and accessories.

new accessories consist of:
turbo
blow off valve
new manifold
new cold air intake
dump pipe
new mounts
strut bar

... all that just for a small 50hp upgrade..?

if i was you i'd be lookin' for a supercharger for the engine.. what ever it may be.. h22/h23/b18... anyway... still.. if i was you i'd be doin' an engine transplant with a b18c5 and then building it for a high compression and high torque... i've heard rumors that a b18c5 w/o forced induction.. is capable of around 320hp... maybe more.. maybe less..

depend's on what you want to use the car for, is it goin' to be a show car? drag car? street car? track car? time attack car?.. what's the car's main purpose?... depending on the desired choice for the vehicle, depend's on the answer...

i think i speak for everyone when i say "we need to know what you want it for before we can sugest things"... yeah..
